Hi - I'm interested in running the SL GUI on a laptop separate from the laptop I am doing audio processing on, so that I can have the SL GUI always visible and always available by just reaching to another keyboard, but all the audio processing with the SL AU plugin in mainstage and other stuff like MaxMSP patches would be happening on my main laptop. My remote laptop would be a powerbook G4 (which is why its not really worth doing any audio processing on it!) with OS X 10.4.11.
When I run sooperlooper on it and attempt to connect to the IP address of my computer running mainstage and SL AU on port 10051, nothing happens - it still says "Not Connected". I am trying to do this over a LAN right now, but when performing it would be with an ethernet cable between the machines probably. I have tried variously opening, closing, connecting, disconnecting the SL AU GUI hosted in mainstage on the primary computer - nothing is working.
Is this even possible? Thanks!
PS - partial workaround would be to use ScreenRecycler (which I already own) to just use my powerbook as a 2nd monitor via VNC, but I am already pushing the CPUs to the max on my Macbook Pro. And it seems excessive
Edit: matter of fact, if I press connect in the prefs, not matter what it changes the IP address back to whatever is set as the default below. But it does not work, even if this default is set to the IP of the other machine - instead it seems to create a sooperlooper instance on he local machine.
